GLINTCAP 2013 Unofficial Results

I was privileged to be chosen as the registrar for this year’s Great Lakes International Cider & Perry Competition (GLINTCAP) and am pleased to share this year’s unofficial results with the cider community. The event continues to grow by leaps and bounds, with 441 total entries in 2013, a 47% increase over 2012. GLINTCAP is truly becoming an international competition with more entries, judges, and stewards hailing from outside the United States each year.

Many thanks to all who participated and hearty congratulations to all medalists! This PDF slideshow is the same that was shown at Sunday night’s awards presentation with a few minor formatting changes.
